Embark on a private journey to the breathtaking Kjeåsen Mountain Farm nestled 600 metres above the high above the fjord. Until 1974 Kjeåsen was once only reachable by a challenging trek. Yet, despite its remoteness, this mountain farm thrived due to its abundant natural resources, with hunting, trapping, and fishing sustaining its inhabitants for generations. The soil here is exceptionally fertile, yielding crops nourished by almost year-round sunshine.

Modernization arrived with the construction of the Simadal power station, marking the end of an era and the beginning of increased tourism to Kjeåsen. Today, it stands as one of the most visited attractions in the region, offering visitors a glimpse into a bygone way of life while showcasing the stunning natural beauty of the Norwegian landscape.

Our tour also includes a stop to admire the majestic Skytjefossen waterfall, which boasts an impressive drop of 300 meters. While regulated for hydroelectric energy production, the waterfall periodically experiences robust water flow, creating a captivating spectacle for those fortunate enough to witness it.
